Wall decor inspired by Chumbak

Everyone loves surprises and gifts. Gifting your loved one on their special occasion is the best thing in the world. And when it comes to the choice of gifts, handmade gifts are priceless and unique.

I wanted to gift my friend on her birthday, who loves to decorate her home with wall mounts and room decors. So gifting her a wall decor was already in my list and then I ended up in making this handmade design.

I made this wall decor inspired by Chumbak designs & Products. I used air dry clay which is available in all the shops.

  • Draw a rough sketch of owl or whatever design you want to make.
  • Place the air dry clay in a plastic cover and flatten them equally using a rolling pin
  • For making a feather,head,body,eyes and other parts, use knife to cut out the shape.
  • Allow the clay to dry 
  • Decorate the feathers with beautiful design.
  • Color them before or after fixing the owl using feviquick/quick fix.

I have shared the video for making this Wall decor in my YouTube Channel. Please subscribe to my YouTube channel"ArtConquers"

How to make Glossy paper quilled earring and its Waterproofing method

This post is all about making the paper quilled earring as a glossy one and its Waterproofing method. I've tried a good number of paper quilled earrings in the recent past, but somehow it loses its colour and beauty in few days itself because of moisture, water, dirt and whatsoever.So, the simple and straight solution would be waterproofing them.

I've seen lot of websites selling glossy jhumkas which is absolutely waterproof and so glossy. I never know the secret of those long-glowing earrings until one of my friend shared the making technique with me. Hence, thought of sharing the same with you all too.

Making of Glossy Jhumkas/Waterproofing them

The Resin & hardener is available in all craft shop and online. I bought EasyCast Resin & Hardener online.The mixing of resin & hardener differs for every brand. Please check the direction of use. This resin & hardener mixture gives pungent odor and allergic to people, so be careful when mixing them, would strongly suggest to do it in a open space without fan. Please reach out of children. 

Mix the resin & hardener of equal parts in a plastic cup and mix them thoroughly without forming any bubbles. After 5 to 10 mins, apply the mixture onto the jhumkas with the help paint brush and allow it to dry for 24 hours.After drying, one can decorate the jhumkas of their own choice. I'm happy that these jhumkas gives glossy effect and waterproof.

Tip: For smooth finishing of jhumkas, one can use nail buffer or salt paper on the dome shaped surface before applying the resin.
